Summary:Create your own back-office tools for free - Minimize your non-billable hours by using Excel. Easily create invoices, keep track of their payments, and monitor your yearly activity.
Description
In one hour, I will show you how to create an invoice model and dashboard in an All-In-One file that will keep you organized and give you a quick overview of how you’re doing each year. We will look at how to use basic Excel functions and give you some ideas on how to adapt the system to your own needs.

In this webinar, we’ll be looking at a recurring task that can take up time you’d rather be spending translating, preparing invoices and checking up on those that have been paid or not. My main goal is to show you one possible invoicing system that you can either adopt entirely or that you can use to inspire you to something better adapted to your activity.
